This is really a very nice project, something that was missing in the Perl Hall of Fame.
It's (being) built by people with an academic background, which insures, imvho, a strong and firm theoretical spirit. This makes this project also very professional, as Maypole aims to be a competetor for frameworks like Java Struts and Ruby on Rails.
It's really easy to write simple web applications, and there's a lot of functionality to build complex bussiness applications, with tight bussiness logics.
The documentation is a bit on the low side, but the mailinglist is an incredible source of information. I'm sure that the documentation will grow in the future, like with most projects.
